Is Apple Outdated in China?

China’s Billionaire Entrepreneur Jia Yueting had taken a dig at tech giant ‘Apple’. In his first International Television interview with CNBC, he had made some important remarks about his rivals.

He stated that primary difference between Apple and us is that Apple is a mobile company which focuses only on Software and hardware. Coming to LeShi, the firm’s preference would be primarily on The Internet, next the software and finally on hardware.

Jia yueting CEO of LeEco formerly known as LeTv called the Netflix of China has expressed his views on the competition between his company and his rivals. Commenting on the iPhone, he says that having separate applications is the need of hour at the early stages of the mobile net. During those times, the CPUs and mobile networks are very slow compared to now. According to the user perspective, it’s a significant obstacle to enjoying all the advancements.

He also pointed that due to its out-dated technology the company’s sale was dropped in China, which was the second biggest market for apple. He exampled that latest model of Apple iPhone SE which is built with low technical values, and the design was obsolete. The specifications of the smartphone are also not up to the mark when compared to other leading mobiles.

Jia stated that the former leader of the mobile industry should bring latest advancements in building its products. He opined that apple should rethink about the closed nature of its systems and lack of internet while designing. He added that due to the over dominance nature of the Firm, its products are lagging these days

During the launch of new super electric Car LeSEE, he said that it would surely surpass Tesla’s Electric Car in all aspects. He pointed that Tesla is right, but LeSEE would be the best since they made the super-car on the idea of making the smartphone run on four wheels.

The CEO of LeEco started his career as a tech support worker went on to build his own IT and Mobile company now Worthing $4.8 million. He guessed that the next generation of the mobile internet would be more open and ecosystem oriented different from the existing one.
